Are these reliable? I was concerned with some of the reviews and there are some others around the same price.

I wish I could tell you, but really don't know. I've never purchased a non Sandisk card until the Lexar card, but I was familiar with Lexar for camera stuff in the past that friends would talk about it a lot as reliable.

I just promised everybody that I'd post up deals on 32gb cards (when I see them), since a couple of the past deals (Lexar and Sandisk) were missed.

Oh well, for $24 (after rebate) I figured it was worth a shot so I ordered.

If you want to cancel that and try a different company:

Pny 32gb class 10
Newegg.com - PNY 32GB Micro SDHC Flash Card Model P-SDU32G10-EFS2

Sandisk 32gb class 4
Newegg.com - SanDisk 32GB Micro SDHC Flash Card w/ Adapter Model SDSDQM-032G-B35A

+1 on the slide-out touch pad.Just hooked up a wired mouse to the LAPDOCK 500 today,MUCH BETTER,speeds things up quite a bit.

Great idea on the phone as a touchpad/mouse,TS!

If the current LAPDOCKS were designed a bit differently,this could already be realized.A slide-out carriage (in place of the current touchpad) to house the phone & use as a touchpad.

Are you listening,GOOGOROLA?!?

Another deal on the Samsung 32gb class 10 microSD, $34.99

FRYS.com*|*SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS

I can't wait until the prices start dropping on the 64gb. I did a search the other day and saw a website selling for a little over $100, but I'm not in a rush to get one until the prices drop by at least 1/2, like the 32gb cards did after 1 year.

Same here,the speeds on the 64GB are supposed to eclipse those on the 32 GB Class 10 cards.
If the performance is that much better,it wouldn't bother me so much if the extra 32GB was unusable on the PHOTON.

However,I've read recently(XDA,I believe)that a lower class card (CLASS 4 or 6) would actually work better on the PHOTON(or other phones?).In so many words,a better match.

Anyone knowledgeable on the subject please chime in.
I'll be back on later today to link a source,if necessary.

Seems to me like manufacturers are trying to sell as many 32gb microsd cards as possible. I wouldn't doubt if we see 64gb micros at dropped prices around the same time next year.

Lexar Class 10 card I got is on sale again:
Amazon.com Gold Box: New Deals. Every Day.

only available for the next 30 minutes or when sold out.

I bought a universal clip mount from amazon
Amazon.com: IG-A03: i.Trek Vent Mount for Garmin Nuvi 200, 200W, 250, 250W, 260, 260W, 270, 205, 205W, 255, 255W, 265T, 265WT, 275T, 500, 550, 680, 750, 760: Electronics

The reason I got this is because I thought it would fit perfectly with the locking mechanism on the mopho dock and my guess was right:




This is just an experiment for now. I'm normally opposed to using a vent mount, simply because I have always had docks specific to my phones and most vent mounts didn't work with phone specific docks. I've been using a friction dash mount with the mopho dock, but have always been thinking of ways that would be more ideal for me. Some of the reasons I'm trying this, 1) The vent mount works with the mopho dock, 2) it takes phone off dash, for better visibility, even though the friction mount worked for my needs, 3) Having phone on dash means more sun exposure, so phone gets hot on sunny days (cali, so more sunny days than gloomy). This puts phone in front of vent for ac to help keep phone cool, 4) Cali law doesn't allow for mount to be placed on center of windshield.

We'll see how stable this is or if the mopho dock is too heavy to keep from a lot of movement. I do have to give motorola a lot of props for making the locking mechanism and suction mount a universal connector that works with many garmin mounts that are sold. I'll report back about the stability and movement after my drive to work tomorrow.

I also have a friction mount coming in also, that has a built in shade/cover. Hopefully, the mopho dock will fit in that, if the vent mount is too unstable.
Amazon.com: ME-USDM: i.Trek Universal Dashboard Mount with built-in holder for Garmin TomTom Magellan iPhone 3/4/5 HTC Samsung Motorola LG Google Android Amazon Kindle: GPS & Navigation

Worst case scenario, I'll go back to my other friction mount and velcro shield/cover.

UPDATE to ^^
Stability with the universal Garmin vent mount was fantastic! Looks like this might be my current setup and I'll keep my other friction mounts for traveling. Another #Win for the MoPho phone dock.

I know the Lapdock comes preloaded with the Firefox browser on it. Does anyone know if we can somehow download Google Chrome on the device and have it as the default web browser instead? I appreciate your thoughts or any feedback!

I took the plunge for a 64gb microSD. Didn't really need it, but felt like it was worth it for 79.99 (no tax + free shipping)!

Happy to report, 64gb microSD formatted fine (59gb available). Already had 26gb of 29gb available loaded on my 32gb microSD. I'll have to put another 6gb of music on the card, but that may take some time.

If you missed the boat before, Amazon has a good deal similar in pricing:

Amazon.com: SanDisk 64GB Mobile Ultra MicroSDXC Class 6 Memory Card with SD Adapter - Retail Packaging: Computers & Accessories

$77.00 (It's through 3rd party retailer, so not sure what the tax or shipping is)

I thought I had read that some users had successfully moved apps to the external SD Card w/a Class 4 or lower card.
I realize the 64GB card is better than that,but, was just curious.

For those of you that have been wanting to check out Beats by Dre earbuds, can't beat this deal. Might be today only, so better order soon:

$38.99 is a steal compared to the normal price.

Hahaha...me too. I'm just glad it wasn't down to $30 or 35 this early...then, I would've felt a little bad that I jumped on the first wave of price drop.

I'm subscribed to deal websites. Best buy's daily deals, amazon daily deals, and newsletters for all the deal websites, like 1saleaday, dailysteals, woot, justdeals, bensoutlet, icemonkey, etc.

Wow! You must get crazy spam. Do you actually look at each one daily?

It's actually not that bad at all. 1 email per day. I have spam filters for affiliated websites, so I don't worry about those, just the sites I trust

Any more battery reviews or suggestions? Just got a used Photon with 2 BF5X batteries included. I can only get 12 hours out of each with 2.5 hours of (bluetooth headset) talk and maybe 40 mins web surfing... rest of the time idle. It's the only thing I hate about the phone, other than the bloatware.

Suggestions please.

If you want to keep the same thickness as stock, MUGEN POWER offers a slimline 1700mah battery for the PHOTON. Actual run times aren't stated w/this battery, but, MUGEN is one of the better known & trusted brands.

I myself have a TREXCELL 3500 extended battery, which will get you through a normal days usage w/out looking for an A/C outlet to juice up.This battery, as most extended batteries, is significantly thicker than stock & comes w/the accommodating cover.

Another less expensive option is buying two brand new stock MOTOROLA batteries.
I just bought one from AMAZON from a trusted seller for $8.88 & it works just as the original battery did when it was new.
I suspect since you bought the PHOTON used, & it's not lasting as long as you'd expect it to between charges, the batteries are past their peak life cycle & need replacing.


*Also,take a look at the TASK MANAGER application that's installed on the phone & utilize it as much as possible to maximize battery life.
I ignored this application for a long time & until recently,hadn't realized that using this application will extend the battery life between charges.

This. I have 2 Motorola batteries that I swap out every night, so I can keep my phone off the charger when I'm sleeping. I always place the phone on maximum battery saver at night and it only drains by 9-11 percent by the morning. Works brilliantly for my needs. As spotty as service is for all providers in my area, Sprint is the strongest and still has trouble keeping full signal all the time, so the maximum battery saver option helps tremendously.

Thanks for the replies. The batterys that came with the phone are brand new. I opened one of them to compare with the already opened one to see if I got better uptime. Nope. These are 1500mah batteries.

If I got about 12.5 hours with the (light) usage as stated in my first post, do you think that 1700mah's will make that much more of a difference versus the 1500's? I would like to continue to use the slim batteries, as I've already bought a case and clip. I'd like to keep the slim profile of the phone, as it feels rather nice in me hands.

I have used the task manager. Thanks for the tip. Also been using the free version of Juice Defender. I'm not convinced it's helping. Is 12~+/- hours on this device with light usage normal? Glad I didn't get the Evo 3D. Read that the battery life is much worse.

Thanks!

I'd honestly get rid of Juice Defender. For some reason, it seemed to be more of a hindrance on Motorola vs. other phones I've had (e.g. HTC, LG, Samsung). One noticable problem Juice Defender was causing on the Photon was when first taking the phone out of standby and trying to open a browser. It would always take a few minutes for the Juice Defender to turn the radios on.

And yes, 12+ hours on light usage is normal.

Wow, just caught this deal today!

HD Station For MOTOROLA PHOTON

$69.99 for the HD dock AND car dock. That's an amazing price. I paid about $30-40 more w/ the Sprint premiere discount 1 year ago.
